Chewing gum doesn't usually have pork or any other animal products in it. It has a lot of synthetic ingredients, but no pork. The only thing that could potentially have any animal products in it would be the glazing, but that could have insect by-products such as beeswax instead of anything from pork. I'm sure if you Google specific name brands and "ingredient list," you'll be able to find out the ingredients in specific brands. Any unfamiliar synthetic terms can be looked up as well.

Aside from all that, it's not really a good idea to EAT chewing gum; you should just spit it out after the flavor goes away. I'm sure the body would have a difficult time digesting it.

alsalamo alykom, brother

really, i have no idea at all, while you may [as Wanderer show] Google "ingredient list" of a specific brand (that you have in your area), and supposidly it should be written on the package some where in micro-font, or e-mail the manufactuerer.

and again, gum could cause digestive propblems and big peace of it may partially or totally block that food line we have after stomach, which may cause further complicated problems.............although that may have low probability while still un-needed.
